The Fleur de Lis dates back to ancient Egypt, and has always represented power, enlightenment and good luck. It has also had some degree of mystery.
As the story goes, it was either Louis X or Louis XI who was about to lose France in a battle. He was out manned, our armed, the other army was better fed and stronger. The situation seemed hopeless. He put the already ancient symbol on his shield for power and luck, and to everyone's surprise, he won! Winning the battle and saving France, he declared the Fleur de Lis to be the symbol of France. There was even a time in France when it was illegal for anyone other than nobility to show or wear the Fleur de Lis (and they wonder why we throw the royals out of power!).
Another part of this which seems debating is whether Fleur de Lis means Flower of Louis (which was always my understanding) or just a lily flower.
